Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2018 Ram 2500 Long Bed w/ the Factory Prep Package
Ram 2500 2108 long bed i have the pucks in bed best 5th hitch
asked by: Willie
The best fifth wheel hitch for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory in-bed rail kit is the B&W Compantion, item # BWRVK3600, because of its combination of durability, ride quality, and ease of use.
B&W hitches are USA made and built to last. They're often regarded by many that use them as the best hitch on the market and the last hitch you'll ever own. The Companion has dual jaws that are 1 inch thick. This gives you the best jaw-to-king pin contact on the market for the smoothest ride with less chucking and the most secure connection for your safety.
The funnel on the Companion's hitch head is wider the most hitches so you don't have to be as precise when backing up. So getting ready to go is easier.
Finally, it's possibly the easiest hitch to mount and remove from the factory pucks in your Ram's bed available. Especially by yourself after everyone else leaves you to do dirty work. The head removes by pullling a few pins, grabbing the two handles, and lifting it off the base.
I've linked a review video of the Companion for you. Also take a look at the picture I attached of it installed in a Ram similar to yours.
The B&W Companion weighs over 150 lbs. If that's not something you're interested in moving by yourself and don't want to have to rely on someone to help you then I recommend purchasing the B&W 5th Wheel Lifting Device for Companion and Patriot Hitches item # BWRVXA3130. This heavy duty steel tool lets you lift your B&W 5th-wheel hitch from your truck bed with a hoist. The 5th-Wheel jaws clamp around the device for a secure grip.
